Jennifer Lopez Did NOT “Like” Comment Dissing Mariah Carey, Despite Claim
HollywoodLife asks in a headline, “Did Jennifer Lopez Diss Mariah Carey After Epic NYE Performance Fail?” It says in the accompanying story, “Did she or didn’t she? Jennifer Lopez, 47, allegedly cast MAJOR shade at Mariah Carey, 46, after her disastrous New Year’s Eve performance that left many fans and celebs shocked and disappointed.”
The site explains, “The ‘Waiting For Tonight’ singer allegedly liked an Instagram comment that referred to Mimi’s lip-sync debacle that read, ‘Ever seen an accident you couldn’t take your eyes away from? That was her tonight!'” Continues the webloid, “WOW! Seriously, we really don’t know what to think about this and whether J.Lo actually dissed Mariah or not.”
Yet, despite being unsure of the legitimacy of this “like,” HollywoodLies still saw fit to do a speculative article all about it. But the screengrab featured by the outlet is not authentic, Gossip Cop has learned. And this isn’t the first time such a situation has arose.
In March of last year, Lopez was falsely accused of tweeting a diss directly to Carey. The purported screengrab, however, was confirmed to be fake, and Lopez herself noted she “would never lower myself” and write “something nasty about another artist.” That still applies. Gossip Cop is exclusively told by a source close to Lopez that the HollywoodLife story is “not true.”
As Gossip Cop reported, while Carey performed on “New Year’s Rockin Eve,” a pre-taped Lopez performance aired on “New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly.” That is the only real connection here.
